October is National Pork Month and Costco is celebrating with extra savings on pork all month long. From October 24-31, you can save $2.50 off the Rack of Pork.
I will be picking up a Rack of Pork this week and I have challenged my husband to come up with a great recipe to share with all of you. Just for fun, I might even have him create the recipe “Chopped” style by giving him some mystery ingredients he has to work into his recipe. If you have any suggestions for a great mystery item, leave it in the comments.
We have never cooked a Rack of Pork before, so we had to do a little research. Luckily, the Pork website has all the information we need to learn how to cook a Rack of Pork, as well as any other cut of pork we might be interested in preparing. They even have my personal favorite…bacon!
Once you know how to prepare the Rack of Pork, you can find a couple of great recipes on Costco.com: In the Warehouse. You will find a recipe for:
- Garlic and Rosemary Rack of Pork
- Herb-Crusted Pork Rib Roast with Red Wine Sauce
Temperature Update: In May, the USDA reduced the temperature guideline for pork loins, chops and roasts from 160 to 145 degrees F, with a three-minute rest. This will yield a juicy, flavorful product that may be pinker in color than most home cooks are used to. Ground pork, like all ground meat, should be cooked to 160 degrees.
Make sure you check back later in the week when I share the recipe my husband came up with. I will also be giving away a $25 Costco Cash Card!
